Lane Community College (LCC) offers a variety of Associate's Degrees, such as:

  • Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (A.A.O.T.)
  • Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.)
  • Associate of General Studies (A.G.S.)

LCC also offers a selection of one and two-year Certificates of Completion, as well as a G.E.D. program. For the Fall 2008 term, 18,678 students enrolled in classes at the college.[1]

Accreditation

LCC is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, which is, in turn, recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and/or the United States Department of Education.

Geography and layout

The main campus of LCC is located in central Lane County between south Eugene and Springfield, just west of I-5. It consists of 20 main classroom buildings and numerous secondary buildings.[2] Due to the hilly campus terrain, upper floors on the north end of the campus are at an elevation slightly below ground floor on the south end. The Center Building houses the library, bookstore, cafeteria, writing center, and the majority of the English and language classrooms.[3][4][5][6] Enrollment Services, the campus student center for enrollment and bookkeeping, is located in Building 1, as is Counseling and Advising, The Women's Center, The Multi-Cultural Center, Disability Resources, The TRiO Learning Center, and ASLCC Student Government and Legal Services.[7][8][9][10][11][12][13]


LCC's campus is fully accessible for wheelchairs and the mobility impaired, and there is a network of concrete bridges that connect neighboring buildings. Parking surrounds the campus buildings on three sides, while athletic facilities such as the track, soccer field, and baseball field cover the north side of the campus. Entering campus from the west side lot, there is a courtyard that once contained a large concrete fountain but later was turned into a flat maze garden speckled with native plants surrounding a small stone fountain in the center.

The west and south sides of campus consist of evergreen forest, which includes walking trails that are often used for physical education and biology classes.

LCC also has satellite campuses in downtown Eugene, Cottage Grove, and Florence.[14][15][16]

KLCC

Lane Community College owns the license for NPR affiliate KLCC. It broadcasts on a frequency of 89.7 MHz in Eugene and on various other repeater frequencies at other cities in West Central Oregon. The station is noteworthy for its eclectic music blend, both on its weekday program Fresh Tracks and on various programs that focus on specific musical genres. Its programming schedule is rounded out with the flagship NPR newsmagazines Morning Edition, Weekend Edition, and All Things Considered, a locally produced newsmagazine called Northwest Passage, Car Talk, and public affairs and discussion.

LCC in Film

Getting Straight, starring Elliott Gould and Candice Bergen, was filmed at LCC in 1969. As the campus was still under construction at the time, the "occupation scenes" were easier to shoot.[17]
